Day Zero: The Series

Sad News

December 6, 2016
We are heartbroken to announce the passing of one of the Day Zero the Series family... Monty Morris, who played "SGT. Farber" in episodes 2x6 through 2x8, also contributed in helping us on the set of 2x4: "Sacrificial Lamb" behind the scenes. He was a friend and fellow real-life Air Force Veteran with Day Zero creator Cal Nguyen. The first time they met was at Van Loi Vietnamese restaurant (the one used in episode 1x6: "Dementia"), where he had heard about the show after running into Cal, who asked him to audition for the series casting call. Although he didn't quite nab the role, Cal saw potential in him so he wrote the character "Farber" for him after he proved himself in not just talent, but also loyalty in helping out, doing PA work on set, etc., which was truly appreciated.

Both men were stationed at Hill Air Force Base at one point, but never ran into each other there, to their recollection anyway. Monty had a gentle demeanor about him and was going places. He at times was frustrated with the performing arts industry, but Cal always reassured him of his talents and to never give up. He was a fulltime federal worker like Cal is, and wanted to break free to work on film, but ultimately decided to stick with his government career. Monty is survived by his wife and children, and will be sorely missed by all. May God rest his soul...

About the Author

Cal Nguyen has been acting since 1998, performing in commercials, infomercials, print modeling and Hollywood studio films such as "Bedazzled", starring Brendan Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley, "Just One Night" with Timothy Hutton, "Unaccompanied Minors" with Lewis Black and Wilmer Valderrama, and even television shows like "Nash Bridges", starring Don Johnson and Cheech Marin. He is recently hot off the 48 Hour Film Project "Voice", serving as the lead character "Steven Emory". Earlier, he was cast in a lead role as "Captain Le" in the short "Escape from Paper City", and then went on to film a supporting role as "Dr. Thomas" in "Pragmatic Repudiation". Known for being a prolific sound-alike (Bill Bixby in particular), he was selected to play the voice of "General Colin Powell" on the Loren Lambert feature, "Shades of Treason". Cal's breakthrough was when he booked a lead, co-star spot as "Jim Lecter" in the post-apocalyptic web TV series, "Day Zero", which, after buying the script rights last year, he became the creator of the show while continuing his role as Jim. The pilot episode earned him three filmmaker awards so far in 2012 alone, throughout the festival circuit. He has trained with some of the best coaches such as Richard Hatch of "Battlestar Galactica" fame, Glenn Morshower from "Transformers", Larry Silverberg (leading Meisner coach), casting director Jeff Johnson, and the prolific producer, director and actor, Lance Williams. Cal received other types of training and experience, being a distinguished Veteran of Gulf War II, and also serving in the Information Technology industry for over 16 years.
